The last Mughal emperor, Aurangzeb, made the city of Aurangabad his capital from 1653 to 1707 and left numerous historic relics alongside a group of ancient Buddhist caves. But the real reason for traipsing here over a weekend is because the town is an excellent base for exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Ajanta and Ellora.

The central-Maharashtiran city of Aurangabad doesn't typically get much in the way of press. Most people, if they stop here at all, generally use it as a base for exploring the nearby Ajanta and Ellora Caves, and while that's the mostly the only natural reason to come here, it's still a suprisingly nice place, with a friendly vibe, lots of lodging options, and decent onward transit connections. If you find yourself wanting to linger longer than it takes just to do the caves (and nearby Daulatabad Fort!) there are also a host of nifty lesser medieval ruins around the town to explore.

Aurangabad is one of the bigger cities in Maharashtra. Its the nearest city to the world famous Ajanta & Ellora caves. Both caves are at driving distance from the city though covering them on a single day is a herculean task. Other places to visit in and around Aurangabad are - Ghrishneshwar temple(half a kilometer from Ellora caves), Daulatabad fort, Bibi ka Maqbara, Soneri Mahal, Aurangabad Caves, Lonar. The city is also a paradise for food lovers(both vegetarian and non-vegetarian). From delicious veg Maharashtrian Thali to mouth-watering Kebabs, foodies have a lot of very good options to choose from.
